PC connectivity issue

I'm having problems connecting my desktop PC to the internet, via wireless. Prior to changing providers from Sky to Virgin, this worked perfectly, without any problems. Since switching, the connection was firstly sporadic (kept dropping, but could be restored by restarting the router), but now will not connect at all - I repeatedly get the message 'Can't connect to this network'. The PC recognises the network, and the strength is 2 bars (always been sufficient to connect in the past). Other devices (laptop, phone, Xbox, etc.) connect without issue.

I have tried:

- Restarting both the router and the PC.

- Disabling then enabling the wireless adaptor settings.

- Forgetting the network and trying to re-join.

- Connecting via the WPS button on the router.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Re: PC connectivity issue

I would check that the wireless adapter's drivers are up to date according to the adapter's manufacturer's website, (Do not rely on Windows update).

You could try using WPA2 with AES wireless encryption if not already doing so.
